How to Turn Plastic Packaging Into Floor Tiles HDPE DIY Project was designed to introduce homesteading readers to a unique way to reuse household waste plastic by melting down and forming it into the shape of a floor tile or garden stepping stone.
HDPE stands for High-Density Polyethylene and is found in containers with the recycle symbol 2 and it’s in common household items like your:
Laundry detergent bottles
Snack food packages
Cereal box liners
Non-carbonated beverage bottles
Whipped topping tubs
Laundry detergent soap bottles
The recycling of plastic has been part of the conservation movement and now the green movement of decades. Since it takes hundreds of years to break down plastic in a landfill, the only way to truly recycle plastic is to reuse it in its current form.
This Do It Yourself project was designed to introduce the reader to a unique way to create your own floor tiles from old plastic containers.
The project includes a complete listing of all of the necessary things that are needed to be on hand in order to get started.
It also includes a complete step by step instructional guide that covers everything from start to finish.
